Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy (CPRT) Training

 Give your children what they need most: You

 

When children have problems, sometimes they don’t have the words to talk about them. Play gives children a way to communicate feelings they don’t understand or can’t express any other way.

Play therapy has been shown to be an effective intervention with children for a variety of behavioural and emotional difficulties. Research has shown that motivated parents can be trained to be as effective as play therapists using play therapy skills with their own children, with as little as 10 hours of Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy (CPRT) training.

Research studies have shown that Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy (CPRT) training can:

CPRT can help children:

  • Manage their feelings and behaviours in appropriate ways
  • Strengthen their self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Develop responsibility and self-control
  • Become self-reliant and self-motivated
  • Develop emotional intfilelligence and self-awareness
  • Decrease anxiety, anger, sadness and other ‘big’ emotions

CPRT can help parents:

  • Learn ways to respond to their child when they are experiencing ‘big’ emotions
  • Learn how to set limits effectively in a gentle way, which preserves children’s self-esteem
  • Increase feelings of warmth towards their children
  • Strengthen the bond they have with their child

CPRT training is conducted in 10 sessions. The atmosphere is friendly and accepting and the training interactive, making it enjoyable and interesting.
